WOEID Lookup makes it really easy to find Yahoo! WOEIDs for any location on Earth. You can search by city, address or zip code. It's also good for looking up weather, time and geolocation data. You might also discover that there are twenty-eight places named Moscow and that twenty-six of them are in the USA. Weird, but interesting.
